Alex’s Skulls

Alex’s mom wrote: “I got excited about your work because my ten year old, Alex, loves drawing skulls and making them out of all kinds of stuff. His dad and I gave him your first book as a birthday gift and he loved it. It was a huge hit. He has since made skulls out of legos, jenga blocks, wire, and beads, among other things.

Alex is in an amazing after-school art class taught by one of his friend’s dads, who was teaching them just recently about Alexander Calder and his wire sculptures. That spawned a teeny wire skull– Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for inspiring all kinds of people – big and small. ”

Soapbox C says:

This is an amazing body of work. Thank you for sharing this with us. We never tire of seeing how the site or the Skullmaster’s book continue inspired creativity in all.

Certainly in times when art programs are falling under the budget knife, it is wonderful to know that others are taking up the cause to make sure our children’s education is richer than only what they need to pass a standardized test.
